ISON 2013-11-15 by phrostie ISON 2013-11-15 by phrostie
My latest ISON.
I was able to see ISON with binoculars, but not the naked eye.

320 frames taken at ISO 3200, 2 seconds.
Canon T2i, Orion 10" x 1200mm reflector.
Stacked in Registax.

Thank you.

it passes the Sun (perihelion) in less than a week, but after that it should be in the evening sky and much brighter.

Great capture of ISON Comet. I hear it's getting brighter.  I need to get up earlier to see it. :) (Smile)

it's brighter, but it's close enough to the sunrise that it doesn't really help.
2 more weeks and it will be in the evening sky

That wonderful, perfect time to see it at dusk just like Comet Panstarr. Can't wait to see it.:) (Smile)

as long as it clears perihelion it should be awesome.

Thank you for the link. Pretty cool site.   A good sky map program is  Stellarium.  It's really neat it has satellite flybys tracking and  comets.

I know it well.
it also has the option to upload comet and asteroid data.
great for planning the nights targets.

I can just use the other on my phone in the field.
